The global PR firm The Publicity Agency headquartered in the United States today congratulated Kazakhstan on 25 years of independence.
As the U.S. was the first country to recognize Kazakhstan as an independence nation, in Washington there was a celebration to mark 25 years of bilateral relations between the United States and Kazakhstan: with the welcome from Kairat Umarov, Ambassador of Kazakhstan to the United States, all-day convention at the Ritz-Carlton was held.
“Kazakhstan is an amazing country. Its capitol, Astana, embodies the future. It’s technologically advanced as well as environmentally friendly and the country itself is eager to work with American businesses,” says Glenn Selig, founder and CEO of The Publicity Agency as he attended the day-long events. “I visited Kazakhstan just before winter and I was incredibly impressed. On behalf of our company, I wanted to wish the Republic of Kazakhstan a Happy Anniversary.”
Mr. Selig produced a video to introduce Americans to Kazakhstan and gifted it to the country of Kazakhstan, in honor of the Republic’s 25th anniversary.
At the convention in Washington, D.C., there were various breakout sessions on business opportunities in Kazakhstan and dialogue about how the United States and Kazakhstan can continue to cooperate geopolitically and in the private sector.
Meantime, on Capitol Hill, Rep. Jeff Fortenberry (R-Nebraska) recognized and underscored the significance of the Kazakhstan-U.S. relationship, particularly in the area of nuclear disarmament.
“The cornerstone of the U.S.–Kazakhstan relations has always been cooperation in nuclear non-proliferation and security,” said Mr. Fortenberry. “After the dissolution of the Soviet Union, Kazakhstan inherited the fourth largest nuclear arsenal in the world and the world’s largest nuclear test site at Semipalatinsk. In the first years of Kazakhstan’s independence, President Nazarbayev renounced nuclear weapons and closed the Semipalatinsk Test Site. The United States provided Kazakhstan with comprehensive assistance in the removal of nuclear warheads, weapons-grade materials, and their supporting infrastructure.”
Five years after becoming independent, Kazakhstan signed the Comprehensive-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT) banning nuclear weapons testing.
To celebrate the 25 years of diplomatic relations between Kazakhstan and the United States, U.S. Ambassador to Kazakhstan, George A. Krol, even flew to Washington to attend.
